This report sets out the results of a scoping study.

Chapter one provides the context examining the current sentencing framework and the commissioning structures being created by the National Offender Management Service.

Chapter two reviews the needs of offenders with multiple needs and considers the most effective interventions.

Based on the detailed recommendations in the first two chapters, in chapter three we set out the model for a proposed demonstration project.

The report provides a blueprint for an innovative, radical model for working with adult male offenders with multiple needs that is enlightened, visionary and evidence based.
